Pretty sure “1990” is Gill Sans Extra Bold, with a “flag” added manually to the figure one, possibly with some ruling tape or maybe an I or l from a different font.
Agreed, and added. Here’s a specimen of Monotype Series 321, Gill Sans Extra Bold:
A similar version was available from Letraset as Gill Extra Bold. None of the digital interpretations is a perfect match. Gill Sans ExtraBold and Gill Sans Nova Extra Bold have too large counters. Gill Sans Display ExtraBold comes close to the metal sample, but is off in some details. e.g. figure 1 has a flag, counter in A is larger, left side of t bar isn’t pointed.
